Up the Down Market Calgary 2021

Up the Down Market Calgary will be held as a virtual event on April 22, 2021

Take Your REAL Investment VIRTUAL!

Thurs. April 22, 2021
Reception: 5:30 pm | Game: 6:00-8:00 pm

Experience the REAL thrills of Up the Down Market while making a REAL investment in the lives of individuals with Down syndrome - virtually!

This year, we're taking Up the Down Market online. The event will be hosted through Zoom and an online game portal that brings the UDMD experience to your home or office.

Your team will plot trading strategy in your own private Zoom room, and enter your trades through a web browser. Mix and mingle with other guests in the virtual reception room. Make high stake bets through chat, bid on exciting silent auction prizes, and purchase tickets online for our popular Air Canada draw. It's everything you expect UDMD to be... from a safe distance.

At Up the Down Market, you and your team will go head-to-head with the heavyweights of finance and industry, buying and selling shares in fictitious companies to see who's the savviest and shrewdest. News broadcasts from CTV fuel the trading frenzy as competing teams brave the ups and downs of the market and vie for the coveted Up the Down Market trophy - and bragging rights for the next year.

As you play, you’ll be investing in something more significant than just stocks and bonds. Through Up the Down Market, a deposit is made toward a brighter future for individuals with Down syndrome - a compounding investment that pays lifetime dividends to so many families.
